Went for a hike at Gunung Angsi (824m), located at Kuala Pilah, Negeri Sembilan. Previously we took easier Bukit Putus trail, so this round we choose a different option which is ascent from Ulu Bendul and descent by Bukit Putus.
The Ulu Bendul trail is longer, consume more time, require to cross river streams and consist more nice scenes compare to Bukit Putus.
Hutan Lipur Ulu Bendul
Phone num: (+6)06- 4888 950
Entrance Fees: RM 5 per person
GPS Coordinate: 2.728941, 102.076657
Bukit Putus (Road side)
Located 3km away from Ulu Bendul
GPS Coordinate: 2.727463, 102.056195
The expedition tooks us 6 hours 23 minutes (07:32 – 13:56) to complete, included few stops and half hour rest on the peak. The trail welcomed us with 2 hours of mid-heavy rain, lots of leeches, and fast river flow speed which make the expedition more adventuring.
Do take extra care at the 30-40 feet barren hill, make proper use of the rope, full attention and team work is required to make sure each and every team member climb up safely.
We parked our cars separately at Ulu Bendul and Bukit Putus, so we doesn’t need to walk 3km back to Ulu Bendul (takes 35 minutes to walk). We just wash our shoes at the small stream nearby Bukit Putus exit and wait drivers to get their cars from Ulu Bendul.
